In the January issue of Marie Claire, singer Katy Perry reveals the reason behind her 2012 divorce from comedian Russell Brand. She also tells the magazine how she dealt with her divorce and how it has affected her current relationship with singer John Mayer.
Speaking out about her divorce from Brand, Perry reveals that their split came down to them having children. “[Brand] really wanted me to have children, and I knew I wasn't ready—I think it was a way of control. I think it was part of, if I have a kid, then I would have to sacrifice—I'd have to be at home more. I really wanted to, but I knew I wasn't ready for it,” Perry tells the magazine.

FASHION RECAP: 2013 MTV EMA's

The 2013 MTV EMA’s proved to be an out of this world night full of awesome, gif-worthy moments, killer performances, and cheery celebs. Redfoo kept the space party pumping all night as the show’s host. He stripped off his suit and slipped into his most comfortable attire (a shiny, tiny speedo), and later in the show managed to stage dive into the crowd. Miley lit up a joint on stage. Will Ferrell made an appearance as the infamous Ron Burgundy and provided laughs and awkward backstage interviews with celebrities. Eminem took home the Global Icon Award and reminded us why he is a “rap god.” But the performances are what really made the night an unforgettable one.
The deluxe version of Prism is decorated with seed paper - which, when planted and watered will grow into a flower. While this is quite cool, officials will have to inspect every case bought from an online retailer in other countries and shipped to Australia, as they could be a possible threat to the country's vegetation. True story.
Well looks like Katy Perry’s ex husband Russell Brand just got Swifted. In teenage lingo, that is when a guy gets together with a talented singer, like Taylor Swift, but messes things up and she writes a hit song about their it. Although Katy Perry is not the vengeful type and she is pretty happy with her current boyfriend John Mayer, she has revealed to several media sources that her new song “By the Grace of God” was inspired by what she went through during her divorce with Russell Brand.
In recent interviews she has been open about how she wrote that song after she found herself crying on the bathroom floor. She said to Entertainment Weekly “Imagine what happens when you go through a break up. We all go through break ups and we all get very depressed and desperate. The lyrics are very exact and autobiographical. That’s how I write. But the one thing about those lyrics is that you can hear me finding my strength throughout the song. It starts off really low and then I kind of stand up for myself and say, ‘No!’”
With the first single “Roar”, roaring onto the charts and airwaves with it’s empowering message, Prism became an early anticapited fall release. Not one to disappoint, the album boasts other standout singles, such as the previously previewed “Dark Horse” and “Unconditionally,” but those aren’t the only tracks capturing attention and solidifying Perry as a true pop star.
Well it took a while, but music star Katy Perry finally got an apology from an unlikely source. In a recent interview for Billboard magazine, Katy shared a story about getting attitude from Barbara Walters because of her late arrival to an interview in 2011. Katy stated the following about the experience:
“I shouldn’t have done the interview: I was playing Madison Square Garden that same night, and I knew that the end of my marriage was coming. I was just exhausted and stressed. I’d prepped everyone that I was running late, but Barbara showed up at the original time anyway. When I got there, I apologized immediately, but then she said to me, ‘You know, I’ve only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that person was? Judy Garland. You know how she turned out, right?’ I was like ‘Oh snap! Yes, bitch!’”
If you tuned into the VMA’s on Sunday night, in addition to Miley Cyrus’s twerkathon with Robin Thicke , you also probably noticed the stand out style choices. As a matter of fact, and if you're anything like us, you were probably paying more attention to what the artists were wearing rather than what they were performing. Don't lie. This is because there is an innate desire in all fashionistas to always look as glamorous as possible, even if it means copying a celebrities look on the red carpet.
